• Limited-time Member PPE Purchase Opportunity Begins

    Register by Aug. 31 to Be Eligible to Buy Until Sept. 3

    To be eligible to purchase during this event, which opened Aug. 24 to all AAFP members (including students and residents), register with Project N95 on the AAFP website no later than 4 p.m. ET Aug. 31.

    After registering, members can purchase PPE, with no minimum order, at these bulk-pricing rates:

    • N95 respirators, size S: $102.20 per box of 20 (maximum order of 50 boxes)
    • N95 respirators, size M/L: $91.20 per box of 20 (maximum order of 50 boxes)
    • Isolation gowns, AAMI Level 1: $21.15 per bag of 15 (maximum order of 70 bags)
    • Disposable face shields: $8.40 per box of 10 (maximum order of 60 boxes)

    The AAFP joined this collaboration as part of its ongoing work to ensure that family physicians have the resources they need to continue serving on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. The AAFP has no financial relationship with the suppliers or with Project N95.

    Because members have reported that much of the PPE they have been able to find on their own has been of poor quality, Project N95 has vetted its suppliers and guarantees that their products meet FDA standards.

    This opportunity lasts only a limited time so that AAFP members' orders can be aggregated to qualify for bulk pricing. It might not be repeated; members are urged to order for their anticipated needs over the coming months. Orders can be shipped within the United States and Puerto Rico.
